Saw's James Wan to helm graphic novel adaptation Nightfall

08.26.2010

James Wan is best known for co-creating and directing the original SAW, also known as "the good one" to most. He followed that series up with DEATH SENTENCE, a pretty horrible revenge tale with Kevin Bacon, and his latest, INSIDIOUS, is being featured at TIFF soon.

Well his next project, according to Deadline, will be an adaptation of the graphic novel NIGHTFALL in which a man is locked up in a prison RUN BY VAMPIRES. Christ.

I'm almost as sick of graphic novel adaptations as I am vampire movies, so this is a combo that has me thoroughly rolling my eyes. But Wan is sure excited about it.

"The minute I heard the concept, I was in. Reading the graphic novel cemented that. Like Saw, it’s a simple concept that, if executed properly, will be so cool."

Vampire jail? Doesn't sound that cool to me. Has anyone read the novel? Will this make a badass movie despite all of us suffering from a massive case of vampire fatigue?

Extra Tidbit: Just make this "Blade escapes from vampire jail" and I'm in.

You would think with this Vampire Craze Marvel would wanna cash into a new Blade movie in general. But I too am sick of Vampires and I think Blade is the only vampire movie Ill be able to watch now since every one has a vampire movie out.

Enough with the Vampires, the novelty is gone. I am so tired of the genre.

Death Sentence was ok. You might of confused it with Dead Silence which was abysmal

I got to disagree with you calling Death Sentence horrible. It really wasn't that bad, and some of the shots that James Wan pulled off in the movie was amazing. Like the parking lot chase scene which was done all in one shot from level to level. That is simply amazing and takes a keen director to pull that off. I have respect for Wan and hope that Nightfall is a success, even though vampires today are being shoved down the throats of mainstream society.

Vampires are not glittery teenage heart throbs.. they don't have southern accents and live in the bayou.. and they definitely don't run fucking prisons.

Death Sentence was a good movie. It wasn't great like the trailers made it out to be but still a solid film. I like Wan and thought he did a great job on Saw and this premise sounds cool to be something great.

Extra Tidbit = Would be an awesome 4th Blade movie.
